Gymnasium and boarding
Schloss-Schule Kirchberg in Baden-Württemberg

A grammar school and boarding school where children and young people feel comfortable and where they can optimally develop their talents – that’s who we are: the Schloss-Schule Kirchberg an der Jagst in Baden- Württemberg , founded in 1914. For us, learning means learning for life in a special atmosphere of well-being and developing individually.

That is why we attach great importance to the personal support of our students.

Laura Giese – Altschülerin & Lehramtsstudentin

Für mich ist die Schloss-Schule etwas ganz Besonderes. Ich habe es sehr familiär und herzlich erlebt. Die Klassenräume waren kleiner, die Klassenstärke niedriger und die Lehrer dadurch näher an den Schülern dran. Die praxisnahen Fächer, wie zum Beispiel Kochen, waren für mich ebenfalls prägend und ich bin heute froh darüber, dass ich auch diese Dinge an der Schule lernen durfte. Hier gibt es einfach viele Aspekte, die für das spätere Leben wichtig sind. Ich bin sehr dankbar, dass ich die Möglichkeit hatte auf die Schloss-Schule zu gehen. Hier war es einfach anders wie an anderen Schulen. Ich bin auch dankbar für die Lehrer, die mich hier begleitet haben. Das war für mich persönlich eine echte Bereicherung!

Our Schloss-Schule Kirchberg was founded in  1914 and is one of the most renowned grammar schools and boarding schools in Germany. The school, which is supported by a non-profit foundation, is state-recognized and ideologically unbound. In everyday school life, we pay particular attention to a tolerant and open interaction with each other – in our international community, the social skills of children and young people are strengthened, while at the same time friendships for life are created here.

The ultimate goal of the Schloss-Schule Kirchberg is to optimally accompany each individual student on the way to a fulfilled and successful (adult) life. Our teachers, educators and staff are committed to this every day and ensure that the children and young people experience a lively, inspiring and varied school time in which they can expand their talents and talents individually and very concretely – true to our guiding principle of life. Learn. Work. Our classes are above average in size, so the students can be well supported and personally supported by teachers and supervisors. So that students and teachers can also work digitally and medial at the highest level, our boarding school is of course equipped with state-of-the-art technology.

Der Bildungsfokus an unserem Internat und Gymnasium liegt vor allem auf Naturwissenschaften, Sprache und Kultur. Um die Kinder und Jugendlichen rundum zu fördern, bieten wir ein abwechslungsreiches Freizeitangebot an, das sowohl den handwerklichen und künstlerischen als auch den sportlichen und musikalischen Horizont der Kinder erweitert und vorhandene Fähigkeiten entwickeln hilft. Besonders beliebt ist dabei unser Angebot einer professionellen Nachwuchsförderung im Bereich des Reitsports.

For good reason, one of the principles of Schloss-Schule Kirchberg is "You demand the best – we promote in the best possible way". We should and want to be measured against this in the interest of the students of the Schloss-Schule Kirchberg. Students who attend a Realschule are also offered interesting opportunities at the Schloss-Schul-Internat via our Aufbaugymnasium – including the Abitur.
